Big Girl Pants - Poem by Jennifer Strubel

What have I done…
Why is this so?
Misery chases me, or is it me who embraces it?
I´m not a believer of karma, nor faith, or people
and I don´t believe in me, either – not anymore.
Age has hit me, no longer a child.
Though I act just the same,
Inside my head. I yearn for my mom –
And his big hands don´t compare.
For the first time in my pathetic life,
I am alone. I am alone.

    I don't know your age but being alone, hits us all. You describe yourself as a loner in the beginning of this poem, maybe you need to reach out and make new friends. Just a thought. Great read on the terrors of standing alone. 10 from Tai (Report) Reply
